Property Value

The value of this property must be from 0 to 360, except for 3-D bar charts, where the value must be from 0 to 44. Applies only to 3-D charts.

The following code example creates a 3-D Chart and then changes the rotation by using the Rotation property.

private void SetRotation()
{
    this.Range["A1", "A5"].Value2 = 22;
    this.Range["B1", "B5"].Value2 = 55;

    Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.Chart chart1 =
        this.Controls.AddChart(this.Range["D2", "H12"], 
        "chart1");

    chart1.SetSourceData(this.Range["A1", "B5"], 
        Excel.XlRowCol.xlColumns);
    chart1.ChartType = Excel.XlChartType.xl3DColumn;

    chart1.Rotation = 40;
}
